The McLaren MP4-12C Spider (convertible) is a tad bit slower than the roadster, but that’s a sacrifice many are willing to accept in exchange for its sleek and nicely-integrated retractable hard top. The British automaker has released a new video (see above) showcasing said hardtop it action. It only takes 17 seconds to operate it.
“We know 12C drivers love the Formula 1 technology DNA that runs throughout their cars. With the 12C Spider, owners will have an even greater opportunity to create their perfect driving experience,” stated Antony Sheriff, McLaren Automotive Managing Director. “Top up or top down, the sports car with highest performance among the competition just became even more breathtaking. The exhilarating aspects of driving the 12C Spider are captured beautifully in this great new film,” he added.
The MP4-12C Spider packs the same 616-hp (625 PS) twin-turbocharged V8 as the Roadster.
